Pinkies Spring/Summer blog hop!

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

There are so many wonderful new products available in the brand new catalogue that I found it really difficult to choose what to use for this blog hop! As you will know if you visit me here often, I like to create home decor items, and I am also in the process of 'refreshing' my home, (in fact, I have gloss all over my hands as I type this!), so I decided to craft myself something to brighten up my newly painted hallway...

I decided to use the gorgeous Butterfly Basics Bundle to fill some frames I bought ages ago! I simply die cut the 2 filigree butterflies and glued them to the front of the glass in the 2 smaller frames. (I took the back mounts out to leave them see through).

On the larger one I stamp the flowers and sentiment directly onto the glass in Versamark, then heat embossed with Smoky Slate Embossing Powder. I then added a little colour to the flowers with my Blendabilities....not very clear here I'm afraid. I finished with some of the tiny butterflies stamped in Rose Red (stamped off first).

Here is a picture of them on my wall...

As you can see, the frames are actually white and work really well with the stamp set! I really love how these came out...I can see me making more similar things as my home gets updated!

What are your favourite things from the new catalogue? Why not make something and share so I can come and see what you made?

I hope you enjoyed my project and now it's time for you to visit Sarah's blog to see her wonderful creation!

Enjoy the rest of the blog hop and I hope to see you again soon!

  3. What a wonderful project Lizy, they look fantastic on your wall. I've had a notion to do something vaguely akin to this for sometime without actually doing anything or knowing what to do. Seeing what you have done has given me the motivation and inspiration to give it a try. Thank you so much. Must get this bundle soon!!!
